Flor de San Martín Garnacha Tinta 2017
Navarra is full of surprises...try this one!
Navarra is full of surprises, producing styles from traditional and oaky to the most modern and brightly fruity. Flor de San Martin is certainly in the latter camp, a juicy red made from grapes grown in high altitude vineyards in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Little rain and these dizzy heights mean lovely intensity of raspberry fresh fruit and lifted herbal aromas – flavours that are unique to the region. This red is from winemaker Gonzalo Zelayeta, who works his magic at the modern San Martín de Unx winery, founded back in 1914. From hand picked (impossible that high with machines) grapes and fermented in stainless steel, this is tasty on its own and versatile with everyday suppers – pork casserole, roast chicken or spicy chickpeas.
